AHH! That’s What I Call Horror! – An Anthology of 90s Horror

AHH! That’s What I Call Horror is a fun little bit of nostalgia, all dressed up as a horror anthology! When I started reading this book, I wasn’t sure how many of the 90s references I’d appreciate. I spent the 90s raising a family. At times it feels like my life went from singing about 1999 with Prince in the 80s straight to Y2K. It turns out I had nothing to worry about. From the references in this book, I think my brain just rolled the 80s and 90s up into one nice little memory package and put a bow on it. But we’re not here to talk about my failing memory. We’re here to talk about this book!

I’m the type who enjoys a good collection of short stories. I’m prepared for at least one story to be a standout story that I wish was longer. And I’m prepared for at least one story to be an outlier, kind of the one that makes you wonder how it got mixed in with the other great stories. I’m here to tell you, there wasn’t a single story that I didn’t care for. I enjoyed every last one. In addition to the 90s throwbacks, there was a good mix of suspense, gore (but nothing too extreme), and even a couple of Lovecraftian type references. I truly enjoyed every last story and was only disappointed when the book came to an end.

Due to be published January 25, 2023, be on the lookout for this great anthology! I found some new-to-me authors in it that I’m going to keep on my radar. In full disclosure, I was given the opportunity to read this electronic ARC in exchange for my honest opinion. I’m happy to give this anthology 5 out of 5 nostalgic stars.
